Teton Dam Marathon Review

On the 2nd of June, I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive to eastern Idaho for the Teton Dam Marathon. I did the 5K.

Did I mention I woke up at 4am to make a 3 hour drive. Yeah, not the best idea for legs to be in PR shape. My leggies were stiff and at 1100 more feet of elevation then at home, it was a slow trot for sure. No PR attempt this trot, that's for sure.

I woke up at 4am (my normal wake up time is 8am - 10am depending on the day) so that early is  painful. I had everything all packed and ready the evening before- brekky, post-race clothes, snacks, and a full tank of gas for the long drive. All I had to do was make coffee and head out.

Today's bloggie prompt is Sweaty selfie time. There are very few things that empower us like a sweaty workout. Our team loves HIIT yoga, running, and boot camps. What is your favorite way to workout this month? 

I seriously love the elliptical. Its as tough or as easy as I want it to be. I made sure to be nice and sweaty as I know I have some toxins to release.
